Katy Perry’s ‘Prism’ Enjoys 237% Sales Rise

Published: Wednesday 4th Dec 2013 by David



With ‘Roar’ now on course to dominate Billboard‘s ‘Year End Charts‘ in the coming weeks, Katy Perry has witnessed its supporting album ‘Prism’ enjoy a 237% sales increase in the last week!

Why she and Lady GaGa have cause to celebrate tonight?

Details below…

Benefiting from the last week’s Holiday season induced discounts, Perry‘s ‘Prism‘ shifted a 133,081 units in the last week, marking a 237% sales increase from the week before and rocketing to #5.

Meanwhile, helped in part by her stellar set at the 2013 ‘American Music Awards’, GaGa’s ‘ARTPOP’ moved 115,469 copies in the same period, enjoy a 130% rise in sales. This, securing it the #7 on this week’s Billboard 200 tally!

The continued interest in both releases comes GaGa’s smash hit single ‘Do What U Want’ shows no signs of slipping on the UK charts, perched at #10 on iTunes one month after its November release!

    Looool shade @ you making this about Katy after that Gaga troll begged you to make a post LOLOLOL! I love TGJ shady ways. Congrats KATY 😉

  3. Lolz December 4, 2013

    I love that picture too, its so shady

  4. JOHNVIDAL December 4, 2013

    What I don´t understand is why some basic stans are always shading others for their albums being discounted at times or for having big budgets for their promo machine (Lady Gaga is usually the victim of these stans) while their faves get discounts and have similar promo campaigns (I´m thinking about Katy or Rihanna of course), not to mention the constant radio support for years. Why the hell do they really think the other artists are gimmicks and frauds but their faves (usually very talentless btw) are not when everybody does the same??? LOL

    • Common Sense December 4, 2013

      Because the stans of lesser artists (like Katy and Rihanna) don’t constantly boast about their fave being the 2nd coming of Christ. They don’t boast about how talented their favorite is and how amazing she is compared to others.

      Gaga is just as basic as the other girls. Sure she’s more talented, but she releases music that is just as generic as all of them. So that’s why she gets targeted more than others.

      • JOHNVIDAL December 5, 2013

        You said it yourself. She is more talented. That instantly makes her less basic than the other young girls. Sorry. I´m sure you are aware of your personal hate when it comes to Gaga right?

  5. Molly December 4, 2013

    Lmao how Katy outselling GaGa and Katy album been out for 6 weeks and Gagas only 3

  6. Love Life December 4, 2013

    What happened to Gaga the ‘album seller’ ?

  7. Lovebird (Britney Jean – OUT NOW) December 4, 2013

    First of all, YYYYYAAAASSSSS at that shady ass pic….yassssss read the tranny.

    Secondly, StrugglePop had a bigger discount during the BF weekend and had another discount before and still PRISM sold more copies, I can’t.

    Dead at the album of the millennium being the struggle of the millennium, and after Interscope spent $25 million on promo.

    In my city, there are buses with Artpop banners all over and still the album FLOPPED, I CAN’T.

  8. Super Cisus December 4, 2013

    Hehehe johnvidal is pissed honey he was the main one calling gaga a album seller and Katy a basic singles artist lolololol enjoy those Xmas sales while they last gaga. Katy wins and the little morons can’t take lmao. I aint even a Katy stan but she is slaying Gaga. Applause hasn’t even sold 2 million but roar is at 3.9 lmao.

  9. Lovebird (Britney Jean – OUT NOW) December 4, 2013

    The singles artist opened with higher first week sales than the album artist who had a $25 million promo budget, a discount, and hype machine.

    The singles artist has sold more copies local and international than the album artist.

    The singles artist will most likely sell out more dates than the album artist, I can’t.

  10. Flop Like Lady Gaga December 4, 2013

    Gaga who ? 😀

  11. Lovebird (Britney Jean – OUT NOW) December 4, 2013

    @Super Cisus, I know right.

    DEAD at his Gaga is an album artist delusion when the singles artist has sold more albums.

    Not the albums artist having a second week drop of 82%, worst than the Singles artist….I can’t.

  12. Queen barb December 4, 2013

    Honey Katy has been slaying gaga all era.. I can the Prism era lasting for 2 and a half years while i dont see the artpop era lasting for more than a year.

    • Queen barb December 4, 2013


  13. tits mcgee December 4, 2013

    LOL @ that pick! PRism is a million times better than that SHitPOp that tranny released!

  17. roxy December 4, 2013


  18. Charty Perry December 4, 2013

    Not to mention Artflop was discounted for $5.99 the day of it’s release. Has Artflop been sold at a regular price ever since its release?

  19. Faith evans–dutchess of r&b December 4, 2013

    See Uga this is what happens whe you’re a pretentious dweeb. Katy isn’t my cup of tea, but she’s letting the music speak for itself this era.

  20. Mark111 December 4, 2013

    Lady Gaga sells more albums than Katy cause she’s a bigger artist and an album seller, while Katy is just a singles artist… is what the monsters were saying weeks ago. Where they go? They must’ve all died cause non of them bought ArtPoop and the only stan is left is @JOHNVIDAL, trying so hard to bring up other singers names that had #1’s singles when their album dropped. Poor dat.

  21. put your EBT card away, and pull that STAn card out h**! December 4, 2013

    Honey gaga will be giving herself an early Christmas gift of stockings filled of ARTPOP, because who else buying them? That Manhorse will be selling it at discount lower than free. Smh how embarrassing is this to be a monster this era? Better yet who the f*** is a monster? I bet monsters fan base is less than 260k in the states. Don’t ask me how i guessed that figure

  22. Queen Mother December 4, 2013

    I can feel the shade from here lmao, Slay a bit Katy!

  23. Lovebird (Britney Jean – OUT NOW) December 4, 2013

    That’s a good question, has Artpop been sold at regular price since release?

    All I’m seeing are discounts everywhere.

  24. Queen Mother December 4, 2013

    love your name @FAITH EVANS–DUTCHESS OF R&B

  25. Citi December 4, 2013

    Artpop was selling for 3.99 and Prism sold for 5.99 at a lot of retailers for black Friday. Go figure. It’s like giving it out for free.

  26. Faith evans–dutchess of r&b December 4, 2013

    Thank you honey 😀 I love me some Faye

  27. jamie December 4, 2013

    Poor Gaga, Katy really took ya spot sis Lmao.

  28. put your EBT card away, and pull that STAn card out h**! December 4, 2013

    Gaga album has yet to go gold through illegal downloads. I heard websites who sell piracy are having a hard time shifting artpoop too. Smh sad!

  29. put your EBT card away, and pull that STAn card out h**! December 4, 2013

  30. KingB_lover December 4, 2013

    But congrats I guess . I’m not sorry .

  31. Frenchkyss December 4, 2013

    Lol the monsters disappeared faster than the Csquad when Ciara flopped

  32. Lovebird (Britney Jean – OUT NOW) December 4, 2013

    We need a search party for the monsters, they are MIA

    • Frenchkyss December 4, 2013

      They were the first ones in Katy’s post when her numbers came out, now they’re AWOL. Kiiiii

  33. GaGa (Fading The fading pop star) December 4, 2013

    I know GaGa is pissed that shes getting slayed by Katy, Gaga been hyping up artpop for over a year and really no one cares this album will struggle to sell a million in America.

  34. Bey Is Grown December 4, 2013

    I don’t hate on anyone except r****** but gaga’s album is insane,best pop album of 2013

  35. Taylor Swift December 4, 2013

    Gaga had the best album…
    She’s clever she’s going to figure out what to do to increase sales

  36. Riley December 4, 2013

    Feel bad for Steve Germanotta.

  37. Antonio December 4, 2013

    PRISM has sold 1.3 million in 6 wks and ARTPOP has sold a solid 1 million in 3 wks. I’m sure by year’s end, PRISM will be close to 2 million and ARTPOP will be around 1.5 million… and I do find it funny that ARTPOP is constantly being discounted but Katy is still outselling her. Yeah, Katy will still be pushing PRISM around the Grammys in 2015 while Gaga will be done with ARTPOP by the summer. My overall predictions:
    PRISM 2.2 mil US/6.5 mil WW
    ARTPOP 1.5 mil US/4 mil WW
    Bangerz 900k/2.5 mil WW
    Britney Jean 400k US/1 mil WW
    Ciara n/a – unless she and Epic… chile nevermind
    Unapologetic 1.2 mil US/ 3.75 mil WW
    Mariah’s 12th album – TBD
    Beyoncé’s 5th album – 1.5 mil US/4 mil WW

  38. Natalie Nunn December 4, 2013

  39. Lydia December 4, 2013

    Haha that picture is everything. I never really checked for Katy like that but Im glad she put pretentious Gaga in her place.

  40. PRISM December 4, 2013

    PRISM: 2M US 5M WW
    BANGERZ: 1M US 2.5M WW
    CIARA: 130K US 185K WW
    BRITNEY JEAN : 350K US 700K WW
    TAMAR: 500K US 750K WW

  41. KingB_lover December 4, 2013

    Lady Gags a lot knew this was comming and so did inter scope after
    Being force to cancel a tour to low ticket sales they knew she
    Was fading away . Hip surgery? My ass.
    So she left out telephone 2.0 out because she knew that would be
    Her plan B despite her being a flop she will come out with a art pop 2.0
    And have beyonce be in it and somehow safe her pathetic ass.
    They always have a plan B I just hope it doesn’t back fire on her dumb
    Overhyping ass.

  42. Touché December 4, 2013

    *Looks at Pic* Samantha you shady b**** lol. I bet it makes your day when everyone bashes Gaga.

  43. nAVY nICK December 4, 2013

    who cares about sales tho? I am saying ,bring on the LIVE showing, GAGA SLAYS KATY LIVE-that is what makes an artist….F the rest! I like Katy, BUT LIVE, she is just OK….BEYONCE, LADY GAGA, AND CIARA WILL GIVE U A SHOW HONEY!!!!

    • MusicStan December 6, 2013

      you are 100% right Beyonce, Ciara, Lady Gaga, Janet, and Madonna are True Artist that let their talent speak for theirselves and will have Longevity in the Music Industry.. every talented artists goes to that slow period in their career all the great has from James to Madonna.. but when it comes to commanding a stage they can def do that…. Stans look at numbers and think that what the music industry is all about.. Yes number plays a part of the deal but let’s remember why they got the deal in the first place??? Talent… Real Music Stans ( like myself don’t care for the number parts of the game we care for the talent that is why talented artist like Beyonce, Ciara, JANET, Madonna, Britney and etc have that fans that they have… Cause a true fan will be there from the bottom up… not when you on top and then when you hit rock bottom call you a flop or whatever… These young stans need to know that their fave isn’t always going to be at the top all the time… So be prepare… Yes I’m a Bey, Ciara, JANET, AALIYAH FAN AND I like some of the new talent out there but with me I’M LOOK FOR MORE TALENT AND TRUE ENTERTAINERS THAN GIMMICKS….

  44. JOHNVIDAL December 5, 2013

    Omg lol these basic people were so used to not only the likes of Gaga being better than their faves but also murdering them commercially, that now that they are on a similar level (I fail to realize how Katy Perry is selling especially better, and this is her best moment…)they finally appeared, became bandwagoners and took over this blog. Fine then. But remember the sane people who still think talent wins (and that´s not Katy Perry lol) exist out of this blog, just that they stopped coming cos Sam attracted all of you basic kids.
    Why do you have to mention me? lol Most of you did in this post. Do I say crazy or hurtful things? NO. Am I a troll like @lovebird lol? NO. You are all as basic as it gets. But don´t worry, unlike you, I won´t change my mind just cos right now it´s cool to like a different artist. Hell I didn´t even do that when I was a little kid.
    Now let me check that Xmas post with queen Mariah Carey.

  45. CARMEN (ULTRAVIOLENCE – 2014) December 5, 2013
